Having a child has a 7% regret rate. Knee replacements have a 6-30% regret rate. Generally, surgeries have a 14% regret rate.

Transitions and trans related surgeries have a 1% regret rate.

@forever can I add something here?
even if they're cis, should a cis man not have the option to remove their balls? (and whatever the afab equivalent is)
plenty of trans people like their gender-atypical anatomy, why not cis people?
it's a matter of bodily autonomy, yeah?

@dhfir yes! trans-related surgeries are mostly trans-related but this is absolutely also done by cis people!

cw: taking about genital surgeries 

@forever @dhfir as someone who has had balls removed i can tell you there are plenty of people who identify as male but don't want to have testicles, and they just have to fuckin DIY that shit

genital, not advice, do not ever do this!!!! 

@root @dhfir 🍆🪓 time

@root @forever personal bodily autonomy: it's a good thing people.

re: cw: taking about "DIY" genital surgeries 

@root @dhfir @forever People who “DIY bottom surgery” may no longer have literal balls but it sure takes metaphorical balls to do that. Especially considering the pain.

I stub my toe and I wince like a bitch. I can’t begin to imagine what that must feel like.

re: cw: taking about "DIY" genital surgeries 

@saturn @dhfir @forever worst pain you'll ever feel! tylenol helped a lot though, surprisingly

re: cw: taking about "DIY" genital surgeries 

@root @dhfir @saturn wait you actually DIY’d it? oh that must have hurt like a bitch

re: cw: taking about "DIY" genital surgeries 

@saturn @root @forever I'd suspect they have painkillers, but considering too much of that would probably mess up their aim, I doubt it.
regional anaesthetic?
perhaps if they could get their hands on it.
